Home Learning School Tasks - 2020

 

Dear All,

Thank you for all your support at the moment during these uncertain times.

I hope everyone is healthy, having fun, and managing to keep your days filled with activities, challenges and hopefully something new. I hope the activity pack that we sent out has helped and you’ve been able to have a go at some of these already.

 

Please stay in touch if you have any problems, or would like to share something that you’ve been up to at home, please email me on daisy@balliolschool.co.uk – I will get back to you as soon as I can.

 

Today’s challenge - 25/03/2020

 

Playing homemade skittles out of household objects.

 

You could use rolled-up socks as the ball, and empty bottles or toilet roll tubes as the skittles.

Encourage your child to describe what they are doing and count how many remaining skittles there are after each go. Remember to praise them for every try.

You could play this inside or outside in the sunshine.

 

27/03/2020

Take your child on a nature collection, either out in the garden or on a walk. Search for objects such as sticks, stones, leaves or flowers. Encourage your child to describe what each item looks and feels like. Try and use different words with your child for example when looking at a flower talk about the petal, buds, stems etc. You could collect some items such as sticks or leaves and ask you child to sort the items in size order or by colour.

 

                                                                         

Wednesday 1st April -

Go on a scavenger hunt below, you could make it into a game to see who in the house can find a certain item first. 

 

                                                          

 

 

I have put some links below to some websites offering free games/activities or something fun to do. I particularly like the webcams at Edinburgh zoo!

Monday 6th April    Hi all hope you are keeping safe and well. Ok todays challenge is a number hunt. How many places and you find numbers round your house?  You could put a 5 minute time limit on the game or longer if you want and maybe a simple prize for whoever finds the most. Good hunting
We would just like to wish you all a very Happy Easter. We hope the Easter bunny can still make it with the odd Easter egg or two. Why send us a photo of your favorite one or any Easter picture and cards you have made. You can send them to daisy@balliolschool.co.uk or jane.dalton@balliolschool.co.uk  I will post a picture of something I have made on this page. Take care and stay safe

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome to everyone joining Daisy Class this year. We hope you will have fun with us this year and on this page we will tell you about the different topics we will be working on and how you can get involved.

Autumn 1   This half term is a great time for the children to explore the changing colours  of the Autumn season. We are starting off with a story called 'Brown Bear Brown Bear' then as the leaves start to turn we will be looking at the colours in nature.  Brown Bear Brown Bear is a very simple story that the children learn to join in with very quickly. I'm sure the library will have copies if you want to share the story at home with your child. On the walk to school you could talk about the different colour cars or door you can spot. A nature collage is always a fun thing to make.  The children will be learning two simple songs 'Baa Baa Black Sheep and Twinkle Twinkle little Star. If the children do any pieces of work at home  please bring them in to show us we love seeing their work and celebrating how clever they are. 
Thank you for the family photos we have had in so far. Please keep them coming the children love to look at them on the wall.

PUMPKIN PARTY    Daisy Class will be having a Pumpkin Party after school from 3.30-5pm on Thursday 31st October.  It will be £3 per child. We will be having lots of fun pumpkin activities and food.  Your child can come in fancy dress if they like. 

Please let a member of staff know if you would like your child to come

Autumn News from the Growing Garden- The children did a great job through last summer term tending to our vegetables and we had some good results before the holiday. There where lots of little tomatoes and the herbs enjoyed the warm weather and lots of water. We had some bees take up residence in our bug hotel and our sunflower grew very tall. Since coming back to school we have harvested the sunflower seeds and they are ready for planting in the spring. Our pumpkin patch produced lots of lovely yellow flowers and fruit but sadly each pumpkin fell off when it got to tennis ball size. Not sure why but we will try again next year. The birds are using the feeding station regularly and we will make seeds cakes as the weather gets colder to keep them happy through the winter. All of this fantastic learning has only been possible  thanks to your fund raising efforts last Easter so a huge thank you form all the staff and children. smiley
Autumn Term 2-  This term is all about Families and Celebrations. Our story is called Owl Babies, again it is a simple story that the children can join in with. Our songs to start the term will be Incy Wincy Spider and 5 Little Men in  a Flying Saucer. We will move onto Christmas songs nearer December. We have had more family photos so thank you,keep sending them in. Birthdays weddings festivals and family celebration photos would be great. If you want to email them pop in and we will give you and address to send them to.

PUMPKIN PARTY- Thank you to everyone for supporting the Pumpkin Party we hope the children had a great time. A special thanks to Jake's Nanny for making us a wonderful spider cake it was yummy

It has been a busy start to the new year with the children working very hard on their winter wonderland topic. . Please pop in at anytime to see their work. Our story this term as been all about a penguin and the children have learnt a new song to go with it, maybe they will sing it to you if you ask. We have been very lucky to have been given some money to but new books for the children with the intention of having a lending library for you to access from the classroom.  Once the books and bags for the children are all here I will let you know and the library will be open in the classroom at the end of each session for you to come and choose a book to share at home.

If you have any questions please just pop in and see me

FAMILY PHOTO   Our family photo board is looking great and the children love to look at pictures of themselves. If you haven't sent one in you can email it to me jane.dalton@ballilolschool.co.uk and i will print it and add it to the board. your welcome to come and have a look any time. 

Mrs Dalton

Many thanks to the parents who have sent in their family photos, the board is looking great. There is always room for more!  Daisy Class lending library will be open after half term. Each child will get a special bag for their book to keep it safe and they will be able to choose and change their book at the end of each session with the adult who comes to collect them. Our aim is to encourage a love of books not just  stories but also the world around them. It will support their language development which is a key early reading skill. If you have any questions just pop in or email me. jane.dalton@balliolschool.co.uk

Thanks

Mrs Dalton
